Nishi

Nishi is a net label dedicated to plundering the depths of music. Formed in 2002 as a sub-label of the (in)famous Canadian MP3 net label No Type, Nishi has focused on bringing a wide range of electronic-based music to a wider audience. From dubhouse to abstract ambient, we try not to let genres get in our way, but attend instead to the quality and honesty of the music (which are intricately subjective & nebulous). For more information about Nishi, visit our homepage at http://www.notype.com/nishi/.

Yes, Nishi has reached its 100th release. To celebrate, we asked some past, present and future artists to submit tracks for a compilation album. The result is almost 3 hours of music spanning dozens of genres, styles and moods (not to mention several continents). Between the sublime washes from Pocka and Ambient Field, the dark glitch-pop of Samarah and John Tennant, and the relentless pounding of Elektro Punc and Sascha Müller, and everything in between, there really should be something for...

A month in 36 minutes: one track for each day of July 2005. Blue T-Shirt cooks up a smorgasbord of electronic styles and moods. Track 5 has barely begun when it dissolves into swathes of reverb; track 12 could be the soundtrack to the world's shortest film; track 10 is a chaotic flurry of filthy drums and slurred synths; the final track is a sprawling slab of ambience weighing in at a lengthy 4:56. But you really need to listen for yourself to pick out your own favourites.
